Hello readers! Please forgive me for my unreliable postings. It seems I don't have any problem taking pictures or writing up posts, but somehow the simple act of uploading photos from my camera causes all sorts of procrastination.
Tonight I discovered for myself the joys of cuffing the sleeves of a blazer. It's something I see done all the time at work (I would say more often than not any blazer we sell is going to merchandized with it's sleeves cuffed), I had just never tried it out for myself. I think this is probably because most of my blazers are bracelet or 3/4 length and so never really need it. This Topshop blazer, however, covers a good portion of my hand and clearly benefits from the treatment. Also on display here we have a Banana Republic sweater and UO necklace.

this sweater when a hipster coworker of mine admired it and even went so far as to inquire as to the store I had purchased it from. The other thing that keeps me from donating it is remembering how badly I wanted it back in high school (I don't normally put items on hold at stores, but if memory serves, this is one such item). When things come into my life easily, I feel I can just as easily let them go. When I have to put more effort into obtaining them, I feel more obligated to hold onto them. And so it would seem that this sweater will be held onto for awhile longer.

Literally a cheesecake shot here (actually more of a cheese danish shot) proposed by coworker and Garment Thread friend Mr. K

I got it into my head that instead of taking a picture of my outfit today, I would take some pictures of my house. How one furnishes one's abode is just as much an expression of oneself as what one chooses to wear on any given day and fashion magazines are forever taking us into the houses of the fashionable. Hence I found it very easy to justify this decision.

fox tank to be used as an undershirt and it was just the thing to make this ensemble respectable.

bra top is an acceptable thing.

Here is a much better outfit incorporating the sweater.

You may recognize this T-shirt from a certain store. It comes in several colourways, but this fox one is undoubtably our most popular and keeps selling out every time we restock it. I am told by the people who tell us these sort of things, that the fox is the animal of the moment (knocking the owl off it's perch as it were). All I can say about this is "Hooray" - now I have a chance to stock up on some vulpine related gear. I love foxes and I feel an almost proprietorial interest in the species having spent my later teenage years playing in a sort of fox related punk band.

before, and the necklace is one of a growing number of "statement necklaces" I am acquiring from work.

great aunt. My mom talks about having a skirt that "went" with it, though my understanding is that it didn't actually have a matching skirt, but rather she had a plaid one that picked up on the green of the sweater.

this one, and as I have said I don't usually go in for this sort of thing, I thought I'd document them.

I tracked this stupid coat halfway across Europe. Saw it first in Barcelona, but at the advise of one of my more jetsetting companions was told to wait til we got to Andorra where I could buy it tax free. Well, it was either not to be found in Andorra or significantly more expensive (can't remember which - alas how the years do fly), so back in Spain I scoured all the Zaras I could find to no avail. Ended up buying it back in Belfast at the most expensive price yet, but by that time I considered that the coat must be had at any cost (well not quite any cost, I believe it was around £70 - a small fortune for me).
